As a physician, it is rewarding when I'm able to help individual patients. But in day-to-day life, I frequently come across issues within the system that need to change.
That's why I'm enthused to join the Advisory Council on the Status of Women. I want to help make a difference for women in Nova Scotia at a larger scale.
I am especially keen to advocate for women's reproductive health, closing the gender pay gap, and for advancing the health of women in rural areas of the province.
